When I Get There

(An Invitational Exhibition by the Students of the Digital Technology and Cultural Club of Washington State University, Tri-Cities)

LW (January 14, 2007): "Previous to my arrival, the students of the DTCC collaboratively selected an object for me.

I had absolutely no idea what object they selected.

On Monday afternoon, January 15th, I arrived at the exhibition space and saw the object for the very first time.

In reaction to this object, I created all of the work for the entire exhibition. The exhibition opened the following day.

THE OBJECT:

To his surprise, Walton was given 279 yards of multicolor yarn.
Yarn

Walton had only 24 hours to create, execute and install all of the work for the exhibition.

Thankfully, he also had the collaborative assistance and support of the Digital Technology and Culture Club, Professor Douglas Gast and WSU.
